Samsung's Pro line of tablets was considered ridiculously expensive when it debuted, but thankfully for those who want in on the hardware, the market is quickly correcting the company's overzealous pricing. After seeing big price drops on eBay in both May and June, the refurbished Galaxy Tab Pro 12.2 is now cheaper than it's ever been at $369.99. That's nearly $300 off the retail price of the new tablet, and much more palatable when compared to offerings from competing manufacturers.
The Nexus 5 is still a pretty darn desirable phone with all this Android L business going on. You can grab a Nexus 5 on eBay today for a reasonable discount. It's $329.99, but there's no tax and shipping is free.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition isn't the most affordable tablet, but thanks to this latest deal, you can shave a couple hundred dollars off the price of one. Samsung's slate is currently available on eBay for $339.99, which is the lowest price we've seen it hit yet. Granted, this is a refurbished unit, but it should still look fine and run even better. Considering Amazon wants over $500 to part with a new one, a tablet that may have been lightly used in a past life is well worth considering.
Most of us have adjusted rather well to taking pictures on our phones, but there's a subset of the market out there that would much rather talk on their cameras. Samsung, as the one smartphone manufacturer willing to build just about anything, wants to help these people out. The Galaxy K Zoom is a point-and-shoot camera that's been smashed into the back of a lower-spec Galaxy S5, and it's currently going for $450 unlocked on eBay Daily Deals.
Have you been wondering if Google really ran out of the Galaxy S4 GPE? Well, maybe there were a few left over. That would explain the cache of devices that just popped up on eBay. Someone has acquired a number of the devices and is selling them at a steep discount. Just $499.99 for an unlocked Google Play Edition smartphone. That's $150 off what Google was selling it for a few weeks ago.
The biggest reason to turn down Samsung's Pro line of tablets is easily the exorbitant pricing. $750 for a tablet? Seriously, Sammy? Unsurprisingly, the various models have quickly fallen to some dramatic discounts, none more so than the top-of-the-line Galaxy Note Pro 12.2. BuyDig's eBay seller account has a refurbished 32GB model going for $449.99. That's $200 off the Amazon price (and technically $300 off retail), and $50 cheaper than we saw earlier this month.
As with most of these promoted eBay deals, standard shipping is free, at least if you live in the United States.
Maybe you want a huge tablet. 10.1-inches of screen just isn't enough for some people, which is fine. Samsung knows how those people feel, which is why it released the Tab Pro 12.2. And right now, refurbished models are going for $385 on eBay, which is a pretty substantial savings over Amazon's $545 asking price for new units. For those who may have forgotten, this is what the Tab Pro is working with:
- Display: 12.2-inch 2560x1600 TFT LCD
- Processor: Exynos 5 Octa (1.9GHz Quad-core + 1.3GHz Quad-core)
- RAM: 3GB
- Storage: 32/64GB
- Cameras: 8MP rear shooter, 2MP front
- Ports: microUSB 3.0, microSD
- Wireless: 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac 2.4GHz and 5GHz, Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi Direct, AllShareCast
- Battery: 9,500mAh
- OS: Android 4.4.2
- Dimensions/Weight: 295.6 x 204 x 7.95mm, 750g
Not bad for $385, eh?
HTC's new One M8 flagship has been out for three months. At this point in its product cycle, we wouldn't expect to see any dramatic discounts, except perhaps for on-contract phones. But one eBay vendor is bucking the trend, selling a new, factory-unlocked M8 for $549.99, a full $150 off the list price from HTC's own website. You can grab the phone and get free shipping to the United States, and unlike many eBay deals, the seller is shipping to a variety of countries around the world.
The 2013 Nexus 7 is approaching a year old now, but that time has done little to slow this 7-inch slate down. New models are still zippy and more than capable of handling most of what the Play Store has to offer. So when the tablet is available at a discounted price, it's worth pondering whether you or someone you know is in need of such a solid piece of tech.
Look, it's been a year since the Nexus 7 got its first hardware refresh. There will probably be a replacement before too long. Right now is the worst time to buy it, at least if you're bothered by the idea of a recently-purchased device being suddenly outclassed by a new one. All that being said... you can get a great deal on the Nexus 7 2013 32GB if you head over to eBay right now.
